In this chapter we deal with one of the countries that are part of the Seven Municipalities Plateau, a lively and welcoming place: Lusiana.

Lusiana is a pretty town that is located in the southernmost part of the Asiago plateau, and directly overlooks the immense Vicenza plain. From where, on clear days, you can enjoy a breathtaking view of the Berici Hills, the Euganean Mountains and the Lessinia Natural Regional Park. Precisely for this strategic position between the plains and the mountains, during the First World War it was the scene of numerous passages of the military convoys.

In fact, these areas were spared from the destruction of the war, which mainly affected the countries of the plateau located further north, and consequently the country was particularly fortified, used for vehicles, artillery and prisons, all for the front line. The years that followed the Great War, made of hunger and poverty, were really hard, so much so that there was a very strong emigration of the population to the United States and South America.

Lusiana

Today, to commemorate this difficult period and all the people forced to abandon their homeland, the "Emigrant's Day" is held annually. The municipality is divided into numerous districts, including the most famous Velo, where the feast mentioned above is celebrated and Campana, where the oldest bell in the Veneto is kept (1388). Finally, remember the hamlet of Santa Caterina, near Gomarolo, famous for the Gnocchi Festival, which takes place on horseback in July and August.

Furthermore, in the hamlet of Santa Caterina we find some really interesting works, in fact in the church of this small town, some altarpieces by the famous painter Jacopo Bassano are kept. In Covolo, we can admire the church of San Donato built in 1089, nearby is the Sojo Park, an incredible pedestrian path where numerous works by various international artists are placed. In the district of Màini in 1946 Sonia Gandhi was born, an Indian naturalized Italian politician, president of the Indian Congress Party and widow of Rajiv Gandhi. She was prime minister of the Lok Sabha, the people's chamber of the Indian Parliament, elected with the largest number of voters in the world, more than 500 million, in 2014.
